In The Morning
USA, 2014, 75 min.
Charting the emotional bonds between nine young Brooklynites over the course of one day, this tonally complex debut feature from writer-director Nefertite Nguvu weaves together three stories about personal growth and the power of choice and action. Shot by cinematographer Arthur Jafa (Daughters of the Dust, Crooklyn), this moving exploration of relationships grapples with the realities of marriage, infidelity, and heartbreak.
Didn’t I Ask for Tea?
Directed by Rahwa Asmerom & Essence Ward
USA, 2014, 23 min. Philadelphia Premiere
When a potential new apartment falls through, young Brooklynite Brandy must scramble to find a place to live. Too little money, too much advice, and a budding romance make for a humorous, if not nerve-wrecking search as friendships evolve, relationships evaporate, and lessons are learned.
